There are plenty of hotels in Amman that cater to hundreds of tourists all year round. But when it comes to exclusivity and uniqueness, no can match or beat the historic and contemporary look and feel of La Locanda Boutique Hotel, which is why it has become one of the best hotels in Jabal Al Weibdeh, Amman. But what makes is so special? That is a good question. The fact of the matter is La Locanda Boutique Hotel is the first hotel of its kind in Jordan.
It is a music themed hotel that provides its guests with numerous luxurious amenities
. The building also has a cultural significance and was constructed back in the 50s – it was a hotel back then too. The owners renovated it in 2015 and launched a brand new hotel, La Locanda Boutique Hotel.
The hotel has a total of 14 rooms and stands 5 stories high. Each room is designed and furnished as a celebration and tribute to Arab artists and musicians from all over the Arab World. For example, one of the rooms is a tribute to Sheikh Imam, an Egyptian singer who was quite often thrown in jail for his deeply touching, but controversial songs on the working class of Egypt.
The color of the room and everything in it is pristine white in honor of Sheikh’s blindness. Some say this disability led to him developing a musical ear and drove him to become one of the country’s most celebrated artists. As soon as you enter the room, you will see a set of industrial white pipes placed, beginning from the headboard of the bed, creeping towards the ceiling. This is was in reflection of the numerous times he was imprisoned.
Another reason why La Locanda Boutique Hotel has become so utterly famous, and one of the best hotels in Jabal Al Weibdeh, Amman is because of this musical bar and restaurant. The restaurant shares its structure with the hotel and attracts hundreds every day and night. The hotel throws different musical festivities every day of the week and there are concerts held there every Monday and Friday.
